Author's comments and explanations:
Released as part of the mostly Game Boy Mickey Mouse series, Mickey Mouse III: Dream Balloon was released in September 1992 by Kemco in Japan for the Famicom. Due to copyright issues it was changed into Kid Clown in Night Mayor World for its US NES 1993 release. It was released in the final days of the NES and it is a short but good platform game.

Movie features

  • Emulator used: FCE Ultra v0.98.16 (it'll desync with any other version)
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Contains entertainment trade offs
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Abuses programming errors
  • Uses Left+Right

About the run

This TAS beats the previous movie by 26 seconds or 1576 frames to be exact.

In this run I don't avoid bonus levels by collecting strawberries. This change allowed me to make a much more entertaining movie than the previous one, because I jump a lot less than Dark Fulgore, and jumping is what makes Mickey go really slow for a few seconds. Those frequent speed changes were very annoying in the previous movie, so I decided to lose a few seconds by going into bonus levels, in exchange for better platform stages.

Nevertheless, my movie is faster because I also made other small changes:

  • I stand in the middle when bosses die
  • I jump less
  • I found a bug (press Left+Right in air and then press B) which allowed me to go faster on vertical stages.
  • Many optimizations here and there, better routes, etc.

About the rom

If you have a GoodMerged set, you'll find this rom inside the Kid Klown set. I decided to use the Japanese version because the American has worse enemies, story, difficulty, etc. There is an English version (Mickey Mouse Dream Balloon (U) (Prototype)), but it was dumped when I already was near the end of my run, and I'm not sure if prototype versions are accepted here.


Dark Fulgore for his great first movie. Most of my routes were borrowed from his run, and most of the time it was really hard to even achieve his same times, so it had me really challenged and that was a big motivation for me.

Truncated: As stated before (topic of previous submission) this is a decent choice of game. Much better flow than the previous run, and positive feedback. Accepting.
NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. Here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.

adelikat: Processing. (Yay FCEU .23)
